    Exceptional service, interesting dishes, fantastic ambience, great location. Nothing that really blew me away amd I’m not sure I could say the value is there considering their tasting menu is priced on par with 3 starred restaurants but our waiter Jutin more than made up for it.

    What an evening! The service was off the charts! The food was divine. The wine was fantastic. We ordered the 8 course tasting with the chicken as extra. We were in food comas until the next day. However everything was insanely amazing.

    Excellent food Great attention to detail Enthusiastic staff Location great I would recommend slightly slower service - or ask the guests Disappointing to sit near some young Asians who seemed to have no interest in the food, treated the front of house staff with disdain and spent most of the evening going to the toilet in groups or instagramming photos of themselves. It didn’t spoil our evening but so disrespectful to the restaurant and other diners

    Truly the best pastry and bread in London ! I would say even better than in France ! And I am not a bread person !! So well deserved - compliments to the pastry chef ! 10 out of 10! Well balanced set menu and deliciously executed food. We were concerned regarding 7 dishes set meal, as we usually do not eat much, however size of the portions and balanced combination of all Ingredients - left us pleasantly full without extra heavy feeling. Overall- so far - for us , personally, the best Michelin starred restaurant in London. And we have been to many.

    Very attentive staff. Extravagant food which was delicious. Extensive wine list (more of a book). Alex Dilling dished up the caviar dish at our table which was a very nice touch. Not cheap of course but a very enjoyable experience overall.

    This was a retirement meal. It was as memorable a dining experience as anyone could ask. Each dish was unique and interesting. The chef explained the food in an easy to understand way. We enjoyed it immensely and have not stopped talking about how much we enjoyed it.

    The quality, flavours and presentation of the food here is absolutely wonderful. The service that we received was second to none. Definitely one to watch, I feel that this will soon get the recognition that it deserves, so glad we were able to experience it.

    A definite ‘star’ one or more in the making. As we await the fame and accolades that are sure to come this is outstanding value. Could not fault it, I marked moderate for noise, but only because they were playing some great jazz and so I enjoyed the volume.

    We had a great time at Alex Dilling’s - the service is starting to get its feet under them and making it a proper 2 star experience. The food is already at that level and with that I tip my hat to the back of the house.
